Son of Guido, Charles Pfister became president of Pfister & Vogel. Expanding far beyond leather, his business interests included the street railway system, banking and insurance. He financed construction of the Pfister Hotel which opened in 1893 at Wisconsin and Jefferson. Today, much of the hotel’s Victorian elegance still survives.
